Spooky season is here, which means it is time for a ghostly Community Day event in Pokémon Go, starring everyone’s favorite spirit—Duskull. The Requiem Pokémon will be appearing more frequently on Oct. 9 from 11am to 5pm local time.

Evolving a Duskull into Dusclops, and then evolving it again into a Dusknoir, will allow the Pokémon to learn the Charged Attack Shadow Ball. Additionally, players will earn triple Stardust for every catch made and Incense and Lure Modules will last for three hours each.

All players who take part in the event will have access to Timed Research and Field Research for free, but anyone who purchases the $1 Duskull Special Research ticket will also unlock an extra set of research to complete.  

There will also be a special one-time-purchase Community Day Box available for 1,280 PokéCoins, which includes 50 Ultra Balls, four Incense, four Star Pieces, and an Elite Charged TM in the in-game shop.

But if you just want to focus on completing all of the research tasks, here is what you can expect to see during the Duskull Community Day.
